**Available in 100 count bottles**
Omega-3 fatty acids are considered to be "good" fats in the diet that may have numerous health benefits. The Omega-3 fatty acids Eicosapentanoic Acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) often are in short supply in the American diet because fatty fish are among the few food sources. Another Omega-3 fatty acid, Alpha-Linolenic Acid (ALA), is more abundant than EPA and DHA in the American diet. The body may be able to convert some ALA into EPA and DHA but the process is thought to be inefficient.
PhysioLogics® EPA/DHA softgels deliver the long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) to support circulatory and metabolic health.* Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. See nutrition information for total fat content. Molecularly distilled to remove Mercury, PCBs and other heavy metal contaminants.
STRUCTURE AND FUNCTION
The family of Omega-3 fatty acids form part of the structure of membranes of every cell in the body and are essential for normal cell growth. EPA and DHA are direct precursors of a wide range of biologically important lipid mediators used in the support of virtually all biological functions, including those of the cardiovascular, reproductive, immune, and nervous systems.* Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA Omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.
Each Omega-3 fatty acid has distinct functions. EPA supports a healthy vascular system.* It is beneficial for circulation and makes more efficient use of myocardial oxygen for heart health maintenance.* DHA is the most prevalent fatty acid of rod photoreceptor disc membranes and synaptic terminals, and is necessary for proper excitable membrane functions and fluidity.*
